What happens when an account is compromised at USD?


Beginning February 2010, any user whose account has been compromised will be notified by phone, blocked from their e-mail and Internet use, and required to do the following before their account is reinstated:

1. Allow ITS to verify that their work-provided systems are clean and up-to-date. This includes anti-virus, anti-spyware, and all critical security patches.

2. Acknowledge that their personal computer systems which connect to USD are also clean, patched, and up-to-date.

3. Reread the USD Policy on Responsible Use Computing (and be directed to the ITS Security web site).
